Notes:

  • Demurrage is including terminal storage costs and plug-in fees.
  • Demurrage is invoiced based on cargo type.
  • Special equipment, such as Flat Racks and Open Top equipment will always follow reefer free time and tariff.
  • IMO cargo in DRY container follows IMO rates. IMO cargo in active REEF or special equipment follows rate of REEF or special equipment respectively.
  • Shipper’s Own Container is considered as equivalent to corresponding container type.
  • NOR equipment follows rate of DRY equipment.
